Shane Victorino‘€™s long run with the Phillies appears to be nearing an end.

ESPN.com’€™s Jerry Crasnick tweets that the Phillies ‘€œhave too many trade options for Victorino to fathom that he’ll stay put.’€

Crasnick lists the Dodgers, Reds, Pirates and Giants among the teams linked to Victorino, who makes $9.5 million this season. The 31-year-old center fielder becomes a free agent at season’€™s end.

Victorino is hitting .261 this season with nine home runs, 40 RBIs, and 24 stolen bases. A lifetime .277 hitter, Victorino joined the Phillies in 2005 and has played the entirety of his major league career in Philadelphia with the exception of a brief stint for the Padres in 2003.
